Yes, I'm posting again with yet another n00b question. I backsweetened my cider with a little table sugar and frozen apple juice concentrate (no additives, other than vit. C). I've got some that I want to keep pretty dry, so I didn't add a lot of sugar, and some that I wanted to be pretty sweet that have more sugar. It's been 5 days, and I checked my plastic sample bottles and there's no fizz. I thought maybe the sample bottles were leaking the carbonation, so I cracked open one of the glass bottles to check. Nothing. Info/questions:
How long does it usually take to carbonate?
Should I put a single drop of activated yeast (yeast mixed with warm water) into each bottle to aid the process?
When should I be scared of bottle bombs?
Temps are around 65 to 75 in the room, cider was extremely clear and extremely dry when I bottled (before sweetening).
No additives in my cider or sugar source, only vitamin C.
